UI keeps eye on energy

The Energy Control Center (ECC) houses one of the most advanced and extensive energy management tools available in a campus environment. The ECC serves as a centralized location for the monitoring, analysis, and forecasting of energy supply and consumption across campus. Cutting-edge energy management software enables energy engineers to optimize the production and distribution of steam, electricity, and chilled water while reducing costs and energy use.

Building dashboards, found at facilities.uiowa.edu/uem/energy-management/ecc-bldg-dashboard.asp, provide real-time displays of energy consumption (steam, electric, chilled water) in all UI buildings connected to the campus utilities system. Track the energy consumption in your building in real-time and watch trends for the last 24 hours and the last 30 days.
